Is there a command line way to see what version of Samba I am running?

share|improve this question

Use the smbstatus command from the shell to get an output like this Samba version 3.0.25b-1.el5_1.4

+1 but I would run smbstatus --version otherwise you'll get a lot of output on a busy server. – 3dinfluence Mar 12 '10 at 21:37

Just enter below command on your terminal

smbd -V
